Most carp fishermen already know it. From Friday 19 to Sunday 21 January 2024, the doors of the Brabanthallen in the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch in The Netherlands will open to welcome carp anglers from across the world to the 28th edition of Europe’s biggest, best, and most spectacular carp show: Carp Den Bosch! This is the show that no carp angler wants to miss.

The whole weekend is exclusively about carp fishing and everything to do with our great hobby. This is traditionally the opening of the carp fishing season. Nowhere else on this planet is 24,000 m² totally dedicated to a single species: the carp! If you cannot find it at Carp Den Bosch 2024, then it probably has not been invented yet! We try to fill the halls not only with products, but also with activities to keep you busy during the entire weekend. If you want to know what there is to do at Carp Den Bosch 2024, keep reading.
